12/11/2017France: Speed Cameras Spraypainted, Scorched
Spraypaint and fire were used last week to disable a half dozen French speed cameras last week.
In Marnay-sur-Seine, France, a burning car was used to destroy the speed camera on the D619 on Saturday, L'Est Eclair reported. A similar fate befell the speed camera on the RN57 in La Cluse-et-Mijoux on Friday. According to L'Est Republicain, gasoline was poured on the device and ignited, though the damage was limited as heavy rain put out the fire. Pink spraypaint was used to disable the speed camera on the RD1075 in Saint-Martin-du-Mont on Thursday, Le Progres reported. This was the fourth attack in the past two weeks. In Le Merzer, two speed cameras were spraypainted black last week Sunday. According to Le Telegramme, the device that also had the initials BZH painted on the side has previously been painted green, pink, orange, red and white. The other, located on the RD9, had the tag line "Stop the money grab!"
